Mirja Lorenz, a Chicago Chapter member, and theorbo player Joel Spears will be playing a benefit Concert for a sweet two year old McKenna who was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Proceeds from ticket sales to the concert will benefit research and family support programs through Families of SMA.
Music will be from the Baroque by Castello, Frescobaldi, Kapsberger, Bach, Telemann, de Visee, Marais, and others.

Our annual Holiday Concert approaches on December
15. With all of our other plans for this holiday season,
let’s not neglect our annual Yuletide recital!
Please let Mark Dawson or Ben Eisenstein know if you
would like to perform, and provide the name of the
pieces, the composer, and the names of the members of
your group. As always a variety of music is welcome.
The next meeting of the Chicago Chapter ARS will be on November 17, 2013. Our music director, Lisette Kielson, will prepare us for our December holiday performance at the library and will continue her survey of “Music Thru the Ages”.
Details are in our latest newsletter which can be found at November 2013
See you there!
It was with sadness that we learned the news about Ann Greene. George Greene and his family plan a memorial gathering and open house for Ann’s friends and relatives Saturday, December 14, noon to 4 PM, at the Maggiano’s Little Italy Restaurant in Schaumburg, 1901 East Woodfield Road. The restaurant is just south of Woodfield Mall in the Streets of Woodfield shopping center, near the corner of Higgins and Route 53 (I-290). Bring your recorders, krumhorns, and loud band instruments, and a viol or lute if you have one, plus stands and any music you would like to play. “I can’t think of a nicer way to pay tribute to a fellow musician,” George says. Please let George know by e-mailing him. If you don’t have his e-mail, e-mail thru the contact us and we will forward it to George.
